Google is celebrating the anniversary of René Laennec's birth today. He invented the stethoscope, developed the understanding of peritonitis and cirrhosis, coined the term melanoma and described metastases of melanoma to the lungs. He also studied tubercolosis, which eventually killed him. We owe a lot to him and others like him. Happy Birthday, René!
